Introduction
Dr. Elodie Macorps is a NASA Postdoc and Collaborator with the NASA Disasters Program at NASA Goddard Space and Flight Center. Dr. Macorps uses data processing of remote sensing imagery, including optical, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and LiDAR for natural hazard assessment and disasters response. Includes creating/improving Digital Elevation Models, developing python notebooks (Jupyter Notebook) for post-disaster mapping (floods, volcanic flows).

Article
The July 2015 block-and-ash flow (BAF) events represent the first documented series of large-volume and long-runout BAFs generated from sustained dome collapses at Volcán de Colima. This eruption is particularly exceptional at this volcano due to (1) the large volume of BAF material emplaced (0.0077±0.001km³), (2) the long runout reached by the ass...

We present results of experiments that use small chemical explosive charges buried in layered aggregates to simulate the effects of subsurface hydrothermal and phreatomagmatic explosions at varying depths and lateral locations, extending earlier experimental results that changed explosion locations only along a vertical axis. The focus is on the re...

Full-text available
While the relationship between the host-substrate properties and the formation of maar-diatreme volcanoes have been investigated in the past, it remains poorly understood. In order to establish the effects of the qualitative host-substrate properties on crater depth, diameter, morphological features, and sub-surface structures, we present a compari...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) can be a valuable geophysical tool for studying near-surface volcanic stratigraphy in areas where outcrops do not exist. Likewise, high resolution ground-based magnetic surveys have the potential to reveal significant features not exposed at the surface, especially in the case of small-volume basaltic volcanoes. Here...
Poster
Full-text available
Stratigraphy and sedimentology descriptions from field investigations and laboratory analyses of the 2015 block-and-ash flows at Volcan de Colima. The poster summarizes granulometry, componentry and stratigraphy results from deposits in the Montegrande ravine. Then we discuss the interpretations and implications for flow dynamics of small-volume bl...
